i found an old card table, for $2.
i had a vision.
i really, really wanted to try my hand at mixed media, junkyard art.

so, i did.
with scraps of scraps of recycled junk.

i used stickers from garage sales (note: the keys are stickers---don't they look real?)

and ripped up pieces of calendar's, useless vintage books and games, and newspaper clippings.

then, with reclaimed white elmer's glue- i watered it down to a modge-podge type consistency, and smothered, dipped and without any thought, rhyme or reason.... started the "masterpiece."  i finished it off, with my hot glue gun and goodwill fringe.  i'm in love.  love it, love it, love it! 

now............ my blue eyes are looking for more mixed media art projects to dip and glue!  wouldn't this make a fantabulous wall covering?  smile, wink, nod.
